Restoration + Meditation + Reiki

This beautiful 90 minute restorative yoga practice will help us balance the yang of summer with the yin of autumn. We'll be reminded to breathe as we utilize the support of props to gently release tension from tight muscles, allow joints to open, and encourage clean energy to flow through. Slowing down and aligning the body and mind while centering the breath will be our focus. Reiki (energy healing) will be woven into the practice for those students who wish to receive deep relaxation, stress release, and prompting natural balance of mind & body. No experience necessary.

Mats and props will be provided at Wildlight Yoga, 4140 N. Milwaukee Ave.

Admission is $25. Pre-registration required. Members receive 10% off.
